Researchers say an endangered killer whale that drew international attention as she carried her dead calf on her head for more than two weeks is finally back to feeding and frolicking with her pod. The Center for Whale Research in Washington state says it watched the orca, known as J35, chase a school of salmon in Haro Strait west of San Juan Island on Saturday afternoon. The whales have been struggling because of a lack of salmon, and J35's calf died soon after birth on July 24. The mother carried the baby on her head for at least 17 days, in an image of grief that struck an emotional chord worldwide. She finally abandoned the carcass as it decomposed.

The US president announced in a tweet that tariffs on steel imports from Turkey would rise to 50 per cent and on aluminum imports to 20 per cent.

Exercising for 90 minutes a day or more could make mental health worse, a major new research suggests. In the largest study of its kind researchers at Yale University and Oxford looked at the fitness regimes of 1.2 million people and compared them with how often they felt depressed or stressed. People who did no extra physical activity said they felt low an average of 3.4 days of the month, while those who exercised regularly reported just two days, a reduction of 43 per cent. However the researchers discovered that more exercise was not always better, with 45 minutes three to five times a week found to have the biggest benefits. People who exercised for periods of 90 minutes at a time...
By Doina Chiacu and Jeff Mason WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Republican U.S. Senator Rand Paul said on Wednesday he delivered a letter from President Donald Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin's government, but the senator and the White House offered different characterizations of the message.

Earth may be on a runaway trajectory towards a 'hothouse' climate which will see huge swathes of the planet become uninhabitable and 200ft sea level rises, an international team of scientists has warned. A new review found that even if targets to cap global warming at 2C are met, it may already be too late because of a 'domino effect' of other factors such as the ongoing reduction in Arctic sea ice and the deforestation of the Amazon rainforest. Lead author Professor Will Steffen of the Stockholm Resilience Centre said Earth was reaching a tipping point where it would be impossible to control devastating climate change. "Human emissions of greenhouse gas are not the sole determinant...

One of the main avenues in the capital Caracas was sealed off, commemorative videos for the National Guard's 81st anniversary flashed on a big screen, and a suited Maduro with a yellow, blue and red presidential sash spoke surrounded by the military's top brass. Maduro's wife recoiled, the camera shook, the state TV broadcast's audio was cut, and the camera abruptly panned out to hundreds of soldiers in sharp formation.
